A nagging problem

Recommended Posts

I bought a Nikon R8 Super from Super 8 Arena. I love it but am having focusing issues. The test roll came back so blurry that shapes couldn't be recognized. This baffles me, since I usually use the distance scale. The lab believes it's the diopter, but I usually don't depend on what I see in the viewfinder. Any ideas? I'll shoot another test roll hoping it's only user error.

Use the split-image focusing aid. And indeed check the lens collar for being in the macro setting. Exposing films to check for focus seems an odd method.
